I'm planning my trip around the eastern part of SA in November, but would like to cross over into Zimbabwe in December. I'm on somewhat of a tight budget and would love some more tips - especially on getting around (I heard good stories about buses, not so much combi's). Can you hitchhike? South Africans are terrified of the idea.
I found this post particularly useful: https://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/forums/africa/zimbabwe/how-to-backpack-zimbabwe-on-a-budget
Also what is the…
We are a group of 3 people. Two men and me(female). We are looking for a female who would like to travel from Whk to Vic Falls in December this year. We need one more person. We will be travelling with a car and sleep over in the far north for the first night and then go on from there the next day. Let me know if you are interested.
I will be in Harare over the weekend of the 15 Oct and am looking for the best way out. I need to be in either Chimoio or Tete in the morning of Monday 17 Oct. Which is the best destination if only using public transport?
Has anyone had any luck booking activities via email in Vic Falls? I have emailed Wild Horizons, Shearwater and Victoria Falls Guide and haven't gotten any response. I'm working solid all day so can't call until after business hours.
Does anyone have suggestions or do you think I can just show up on the day? Getting a bit worried if things will be fully booked as I'll be there Friday.
Latest update: Entry requirements section - the UNIVISA system (which allowed travellers to enter both Zimbabwe and Zambia using a dual visa) is currently suspended; if you’re travelling between Zimbabwe and Zambia (more than one entry either way), you should get a double entry visa for both countries
1. Just wonder if it is feasible to do a self-driving trip to these three countries in a rental car?
2. Do we need to rent a 4x4 (e are not going to drive to remote areas, but it is rainy season in December)?
3. Is it best to rent a car in Harare?
I have a last minute work trip to Zimbabwe coming up early September and managed to squeeze in three days in Victoria Falls at the end. I haven't been to Zimbabwe or Vic Falls before and am trying to figure out what would be possible.
I'd like to walk around the falls for good views, possibly visit devil's pool and possibly do a microlight flight. I fly home from Victoria Falls and from what I've read expect there to be more water on the Zimbabwe side but would like to visit the Zambia…
I've read many things about Zimbabwe, and haven't made up my mind about my trip.
Next Oct I'll be flying into Livingstone. I intend to spend a day or 2 in Vic Falls, and then I have 7 days to cross the country into Mozambique (Chimoio). I was planning to go to Hwange NP. Is it possible to arrange from Vic Falls? We are 4, and don't have our vehicle.
After that maybe Bulamayo, not sure about Great Zimbabwe (too much road travel).
Is it easy the trip from Harare to Chimoio? Does…
We are planning a trip to Zimbabwe for next summer. Our primary interest is in going on a safari, but we'd also like to see Victoria Falls. My question is, assuming that we don't care about activities like zip-lining, rafting, etc. and really just want to get a good look at the falls, how much time should we allot? Would it be enough to say, get there in late morning, see the falls, spend the night, and then head out the next morning?
